Eye Teaming Treatment in Parker CO
If you have double vision, headaches, blurred vision, and eyestrain, especially while completing near work such as reading and computer activities, you may have an eye teaming problem. This can obstruct your ability to succeed in school, work, and sports.
What are Eye Teaming Difficulties?
Eye teaming (also known as binocular vision) is a visual skill that allows both eyes to work together in a precise and coordinated way. Good eye teaming allows for sustained, single, comfortable vision and is responsible for much of our depth perception. Our eyes are designed to work as a team, but each eye functions independently, so when we view an object, the brain receives the image from each eye separately, then combines these two images to make one fused image. If our two eyes can fuse these images together comfortably for a period of time, the result is a normal, clear, single vision with depth perception.
When you have an eye teaming problem, the brain cannot organize this information appropriately, which is confusing. This can hinder your ability to concentrate on close work, make reading difficult, and affect your physical coordination in sports, play, and other daily activities.
There are many types of eye teaming problems (binocular vision dysfunctions), but the two most common we see in practice are convergence insufficiency, an eye-teaming problem in which the eyes have a strong tendency to drift outward when viewing a near object since the brain perceives an object as near to be farther away than it is, and convergence excess, an eye teaming problem in which the eyes tend to drift inward because the brain perceives a near object as closer than it is.
